  • The Park has many facets and can satisfy adults by the many exhibitions or activities, as well as children who enjoy free great areas of games or for € 10 day of the inflatable 'Europa Kids' one together fun park or it will give heart to joy. Plan the swimsuit for the super slide. For adults at the moment a very nice presentation in images on large screens of the works of Van Gogh in the great Hall

  • Tuesday at 10:15, I first thought that the site was closed... but then we could enter and often alone in the rooms... the having visited shortly after the opening, it is a site that is aging badly, lack of maintenance, sad... The only tour that satisfy us is that of the submarine where we received a good welcome and which turned out to be very interesting

  • I love this park, the place is friendly, the lawns are clean, a security service that we see and who "patrol" on a regular basis. The Park is nice is full of many things to do. You can drink a drink, eat, take a coffee on the terrace via a few restaurants bars inside, we can go see the dancers of kizomba, bachata etc under the great Hall, see an expo, participate in artistic activities. I love the ambiance of La Villette and modern infrastructure are harmonious, we have space, it is important in this supeuple city or I sometimes feel opressee. Fortunately there are places such as the!

  • It's a huge typical Parisian park with attraction, play areas , riverboat rides, slides and it's fun for everyone, every age. There are places to relax and sunbathing, take long walks, fast food and lots and lots of greenery! A must for your stay in Paris - close to tram, bus stops, shops etc.
  • A must-see. Not your dad's Paris. Loads to see and do for all ages and great place for photographers. Just go and see if, you won't regret it
  • It was nice 20 years ago when my grandpa was taking us there. But now it's kind of a cheap place. The parc around is still nice though.
  • Great park with lots of space to lie down on a nice day. Good facilities for children - all round lots to see and do and a great place to spend a day
  • Excelent option for the kids. Lot of things to do.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
